Description

1x bottle of Chateau Rieussec, 1er Cru Classe of Sauternes AOC. Bottle in pristine condition, recently removed from bonded temperature controlled storage. This is a superb wine that would uplift and enthuse any Christmas table.

'The 2011 Rieussec, a blend of 95% Semillon, 2% Sauvignon Blanc and 3% Muscadelle is an absolute dream. There is wonderful precision and mineralité on the nose, the new oak more integrated than a few months ago. The palate is beautifully balanced with clear honey, brioche and pralines, a sensual Rieussec that is utterly charming, hints of nougat and almond lingering on the long finish. Gorgeous! Tasted April 2016.' 95/100 Wine Advocate (Parker)

'Dense and spicy, and a sense of richness, opens to a real aromatic intensity. Very rich and spicy and intense. Big, powerful and still zesty – great concentration and impressive. (JH)' 17.5/100 (jancisrobinson.com)

'Tasted blind at the Sauternes 2011 horizontal tasting. The Château Rieussec 2011 transcends its somewhat "middling" performance from barrel and delivers a knockout wine in bottle. For sure, it demonstrates a lot of vanilla from the new oak on the nose, complemented by almond, French patisserie and touches of white peach. The élevage is more expressive than the terroir at the moment, although there is clearly a lot of fruit underneath. The palate is very well balanced, with thickly textured honeyed fruits that lacquer the inside of the mouth and stay there. This is extremely well balanced but very young and primal, yet the crescendo of flavors is very impressive. Tasted blind, I hazarded a guess that this might be Yquem '11. Enough said. Drink 2017-2045.' 95/100 Neal Martin
